  • South Korean automotive manufacturer Hyundai has announced that it will begin production of the world’s first mass-produced heavy-duty truck powered by hydrogen in August this year. 
  • The maximum driving range of the 2021 XCIENT Fuel Cell is set to be around 400km. 
  • Refueling a full tank of hydrogen takes about eight to 20 minutes, depending on the ambient temperature

Hyundai will ship 140 units of the new XCIENT Fuel Cell to Switzerland by the end of this year. It is also looking for other markets in North America and China. “There is a lot of interest for the truck outside Switzerland as well. We are very confident that we will see XCIENT Fuel Cell trucks on the road in other European countries next year,” commented Mark Freymueller, CEO of Hyundai Hydrogen Mobility.

Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
